I couldn’t resist one last vegan dessert before Thanksgiving! While we already hosted friends over the weekend, I’m always SO excited for the day. This year, my parents are coming to visit me and we are going to make a small meal, but I mostly love handling the dessert side of things. I’ve made a version of a vegan chocolate pecan pie in the past, but it had a more oat-based crust and I wanted to make a better version, (more…)
The time is here! Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and out of all the desserts on the table, pies always take the cake at this particular holiday.
